It's time for the Halloween edition of the Craft Lightning Blog Hop!  I love edible cupcake toppers, and if you're looking for a super easy, incredibly cute gum paste cake or cupcake decoration for fall and Halloween, look no further.  These gum paste pumpkins are SO easy to make, and look amazing!

They only take a few seconds to make each one.  Really. Can't beat that, right?

Materials for Making Gum  Paste Pumpkin Cupcake Toppers:

Color the gum paste using orange gel food coloring (I like Americolor brand) and roll a small portion into a ball.

Use the paring knife to score lines in the orange ball of gum paste.

Stick a whole clove, ball end down, into the top of the pumpkin. 

Make them in a variety of sizes and shapes.  

Stick them on top of cupcakes.

Stick them in the middle of whirling fall leaves, and in a fall leaves cupcake wrapper.

Make a whole pumpkin patch for a cake! Put them on top of rice krispie treats!  You'll want to decorate everything with these easy little pumpkin cuties.
